Nothing decent about that.
And if the stimulus package had not happened, it probably would have been much worse.

For a month on month basis this report is excellent because it shows people are returning to the work force. It is the first sign in a reversing trend.

INDY is just sad because he knows that President Obama is here to stay.

It's funny because there's this Packers forum I post at and they say that Rasmussen polls are the only unbiased ones and that Romney is going to win in a landslide. Pure entertainment.

Complete divorce from reality.

It is one thing to believe this is a toss-up (I disagree) but it's completely something else to believe that Romney will win in a landslide. I almost wish I had Fox News to watch on Tuesday night.

Yeah they're basically calling all the pollsters "biased". I almost want to link the forum here. Lol

Indy is just sad because he's lived through a real recovery. A booming recovery after a decade that gave us federal wage & price controls, stagflation and the Misery Index.

Unemployment was over 10% early in Reagan's first term also but he was reelected with 7% GDP growth, 59% of the popular vote and carried 49 states.

Indy is just sad because America is not the land of "it could have been worse" and yet 47%, yes I said it, 47% of Americans seem content with that.

The full statement is, "It could have been worse, you could have elected a Republican."

47%? Would that be the entitled victims? Bet there will be even more of those after Sandy too. 5,4,3,2,1 before that starts somewhere. Of course we already had the comment about Gucci bags and massage parlors.

The unemployment rate when Reagan was elected was 7.2 %. He also called it some kind of new dawn in America or something like that. I heard about that on the news recently but I don't have time to Google it.

Lol... "Mitt Romney's family has more people in it than a Tyler Perry movie."

That's golden. Reminds me of Thomas Jefferson's Family Guy family portrait with 'the whole family':

In other news, I took today to read up on the Florida Amendments.

Couldn't believe Amendment #8 was seriously on the ballot and it angers me.

Quote:
Text of Section 3: Religious Freedom
There shall be no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting or penalizing the free exercise thereof. Religious freedom shall not justify practices inconsistent with public morals, peace, or safety. No individual or entity may be discriminated against or barred from receiving funding on the basis of religious identity or belief. No revenue of the state or any political subdivision or agency thereof shall ever be taken from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution.
Before we know it, the churches will have lobbyist powers, we'll be charged tithes for our sins, and it will be illegal to be Muslim in Florida. Fuck that. Obnoxious breach in separation of church and state.

Oh boy. I am sure there are idiots at Pres.O's rallies too but this is frightening. Brought to you by Faux News and Limbaugh et al...
